Hi:

I have an app that has the questions and answers to FAQs stored as raw html in a SQL Server Database

In other cases, I've been able to display the formatted Html in my apps by using Html.Raw instead of Html.DisplayFor

However, in the following code which uses Bootstrap:

@model Site.Models.FaqsViewModel

<div class="content">
    <div class="row">
        <div class="accordion" id="accordion2">
            <div class="accordion-group">

                @foreach (var item in Model.FaqBriefs)
                {
                    <div class="accordion-heading">
                        <a class="accordion-toggle" data-toggle="collapse" data-parent="#accordion2" href= @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.AnswerLink)>@Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.Question)</a>
                    </div>
                    <div id=@Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.AnswerId) class="accordion-body collapse ">
                        <div class="accordion-inner">
                            @Html.Raw(modelItem => item.Answer)
                        </div>
                    </div>
                }

            </div>

        </div>
    </div>
</div>

Open in new window


the line @Html.Raw(modelItem =>item.Answer) is giving me the error that "Cannot resolve method Raw(lamda expression)  in the intellisense and " Cannot convert lambda expression to type 'string' because it is not a delegate type" when I run it.  

Any help in figuring this out greatly appreciated.

Perfect, thank you!

ps - I'm wondering why I'm using lamda expressions in the other parts of the code - it's just a patter that I've picked up as I learn this stuff?

you may want to look at display templates though... that for each looks suspicious in that it could be cleaner with a specific view :)
